Yesterday the creatures decided it was Cake Day! Cake Day is a day where you eat as much cake as you like even though it isn't anyone's birthday. But first they needed to make a cake, so they all got together and decided that carrot cake would be the cake of the day.
The owls took on the role of recipe readers and general cake directors, while everyone else ran around and busied themselves in the kitchen.
Once the boring-but-essential buttering of the cake tin and lighting the oven was completed, it was time for the proper cake making to begin! The raccoons decided the flour and dry ingredients would be their thing.
While the red pandas dealt with the eggs and other liquidy ingredients (the hardest and most important job according to them).
And the Brian the wombat fastidiously took on the role of carrot-grater (an exhausting job!) and walnut-chopper (actually funner than it looks).
When it came time to combine the mixtures, the excitement in the room was palpable, they could just about see the finished cake in front of them!
While the cake was happily baking in the oven, a decision had to be made about who would take on the all important job of icing-maker. At that moment, as if out of nowhere, the yetis appeared and insisted they would definitely be best for the job. Everyone agreed they probably would be best, and despite the fact that they ate several spoonfuls of the icing before it made it to the cake, they did an exceptional job!
Team Carrot Cake were all very proud once it was finished, and rightly so. Cake Day was a huge success!
